How do I fix this? I am getting the error: "Cannot create symbolic link : Access is denied" You need to run 7-Zip File Manager in administrator mode. Right-click the icon of 7-Zip File Manager, and then click "Run as administrator".


This answer on a closed question contains a link to a SevenForums thread on this issue. One of the users posted a solution he found on a Microsoft thread. Essentially this problem is caused by Windows security update KB3039066. I have found that uninstalling it and restarting (not just relogging) fixes the problem.
